Women's History
Paula Hawkins, a Republican, became Florida's first (and to this day only) female U.S. senator in 1980. According to the Palm Beach Post, “She was the first woman to serve in the Senate without first serving in Congress on a family connection. She was the 15th woman elected to the Senate and the second Republican elected from Florida since Reconstruction.” AP photo
